“When you meet others in places like psych hospitals, everyone is broken open, raw and vulnerable. Even the shyest person purged and shared around those tables in groups, knowing that they too, were understood, protected, and never judged. So many pure emotions visible, all the fraying edges of exposed nerves. Connections were formed instantaneously. We knew we were understood. A tribe of broken warriors. A family of misfits. Beautiful disasters in the flesh. Broken angels” (Shaharazade, 2017).
